So Sad: The Three Emanuel Brothers Are Mad at NBC
Poor babies. They’re angry that Brian Williams asked — gasp — tough questions. Via the New York Post:
Hollywood uber-agent Ari Emanuel sent a fiery legal letter to NBC after he objected to a contentious interview he and his high-powered brothers sat for with Brian Williams for “Rock Center,” sources tell Page Six.
The brothers — Ari, Chicago Mayor Rahm and bioethicist Ezekiel — appeared on the show, in a segment that aired Friday, to talk about Ezekiel’s upcoming book, “Brothers Emanuel: A Memoir of an American Family.” But a source said that when they met Williams earlier this month to pretape it at a Manhattan bar, the NBC anchor was acting “like it was for ‘Meet the Press.’ ”
“Ari was not happy with it,” the source said of the aggressive interview done in a casual setting. “It was very odd, and [the brothers] were caught off guard. They were there to talk about the book and growing up together. They had offers to do this interview with lots of other people.”
